WEBINAR — High-Speed Internet in the Heartland: The Challenges and Opportunities of Rural Broadband

Rural communities are increasingly challenged by changes to their traditional economic base. New technologies have forced change in familiar industries, and employers must accommodate to remain competitive. In the residential sector, such technologies have the potential to advance community relationships. Expanding broadband, or high-speed internet, and the adoption of the latest platforms that come in over it, has made everything local, global. Virtual events and meetings, for instance, build truly long-distance relationships in a click. Large health and medical services achieve hitherto unimaginable market penetration.
